There's quite literally tons of them, but from the main ones:

Chrome = great for security, bad for privacy
Firefox = great for privacy, a bit slow and security isn't quite up there yet
Opera = surprisingly good, but ignored
Edge = There's nothing wrong with this really. It's decent for security and privacy.


Needless to say, if privacy is a big thing for you don't use google or their search engine.

Thanks a lot for the answer ;-D

For me I'm not too concerned about the privacy part, so for now I am using Chrome. However in terms of the extensions and compatibility, I was reading this article which says that firefox has a lot of extensions. I would like something that is flexible and also quite compatible across all the operating systems. Does anybody have experience comparing firefox to chrome in this regard?

I use Firefox from time to time, but I never use extensions really. Just a reminder, but regardless of browser be careful what extensions you use. In order for some of them to work, they can create security risks.

It's still early for Vivaldi, but the former Opera employers are doing a good job so far. It's more then capable already and as the company doesn't have shareholders etc, they don't have to have outside interference.
